Short Circuit 2 ★½ 1988 (PG)

A sequel to the first adorablerobotoutwitsbadguys tale. The robot, Number Five, makes his way through numerous plot turns without much human assistance or much purpose. Harmless (unless you have to spend time watching it), but pointless and juvenile. Very occasional genuinely funny moments. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Fisher Stevens, Cynthia Gibb, Michael McKean, Jack Weston, David Hemblen; D: Kenneth Johnson; W: Brent Maddock, S.S. Wilson; C: John McPherson; M: Charles Fox.
